BENEFITING: Worldteach, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Jun 15, 2014
I will be living in Nepal this summer for 8 weeks teaching in a public school working on improving English skills of both teachers and students which will better off their lives long term having this skill.
I will be teaching with local teachers in elementary and high schools in Kathmandu Valley. All the schools where volunteers are placed are in poorer sections of the city, serving children whose parents are day laborers, themselves with little or no education. All the schools will be associated with NELTA, the Nepal English Language Teachers Association, a highly-regarded nation-wide association of teachers of English.
This program is important to me because not only will I have a unique experience and be able to travel to one of the most gorgeous places on Earth, but I will be teaching in a school able to affect and assist to better the lives of those I meet. Hopefully by the end of my trip I will have achieved an experience so powerful that I will have a changed view of myself as a person and educator. The feeling that I come away from after the Pay It Forward Tours I have spent my spring breaks on, when life seems so special and the people I have been with so extraordinary in their own ways that I will always have a piece of them with me.
This is something I have been talking and dreaming about for three years and finally it is becoming a reality! I am overjoyed to have the opportunity and cannot wait to get started!
Please help me make this the best birthday/holiday season/summer every by donating instead of getting me a birthday gift/drink!
Thanks so much for helping me achieve my dreams it means a lot to me!
